Baltimore Workers Compensation Attorney’s

When an employee is first hurt on the job questions begin pouring into their mind.  It is a stressful circumstance and like with all of life stresses, the longer questions go unanswered the deeper the impact is felt.  To help quell some of the stress related to a work accident it is often useful to hire a workers comp attorney.  For some this may be the first instinct and only hours later they will have secured legal representation to help them along the way.  For others, the fact that Workers Compensation Attorneys even exist is a surprise.  It is important for those injured on the job to do their research and choose whether or not hiring an attorney is in their best interest, which attorney they should hire, how the attorney to client relationship works, expectations the injured worker should have of their attorney, and expectations the attorney will have of the injured employee.

DOES THE INJURED EMPLOYEE REALLY NEED A BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY ?

There are a number of reasons an injured worker would need an attorney.  It is possible to undertake the process pro se (one one’s own behalf) however it is usually not recommended.  The process is confusion to many attorneys that don’t usually practice in this area of law so a person with no legal training would like be even more confused.  A qualified Baltimore workers compensation attorney can provide the guidance an injured worker needs and answer questions along the way.  Communication with the insurance company is often difficult so a Baltimore workers compensation attorney can help force this communication through the use of the legal process.  The insurance company will have an attorney on retainer to answer questions and assist them.  It is only prudent that the injured worker also have legal advice.  More often than not if a case is handled by the injured worker and a Baltimore Workers Compensation Attorney is not representing that individual then some entitlements and benefits will be left on the table at the injured workers expense. Here is why!

WEIGH THE PROS AND CONS OF HIRING A BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION LAWYER

There are positives and negative with almost everything in life and that also could be the case when deciding whether to hire a lawyer.  Many of the negative can be handled in the beginning of the attorney client relationship.  One potential negative in hiring A Baltimore workers compensation attorney will request to be paid for his services which will be paid out of  money that the attorney recovers.  The positive end of this is that most attorney will not accept a case if they do not think they can recover more money for the injured worker than that injured worker could recover on their own.  An injured worker representing herself will be consumed with attending doctors appointments and handling the legal aspects of the case.  A Baltimore workers compensation attorney can alleviate the stress by handling the legal side and allowing the injured worker to focus on getting healthier.     For more information follow this link

HERE ARE SOME REASONS TO HAVE A BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY

The fact is there are a lot of good reasons to have a workers compensation attorney on your side.  For most employees hurt on the job these reasons do not become apparent until a certain stage in the case.  There is a chance some damage is done to the case before the injured worker decides to lawyer up.  Thankfully, most damage can be explained away and reversed once represented.  It is never to early to get an attorney involved.

WHEN DO I HIRE A BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY?

As I earlier stated it is never to early to hire an attorney to help with the case.  Their are, however times when the injured worker will need a lawyer more than other times.  There are certain benefits that are very difficult to obtain without legal representation.  Knowing when to hire a Baltimore workers comp attorney and knowing when it is too late to hire a Baltimore workers compensation lawyer is important in any claim if the injured worker wants to obtain all the benefits they deserve.  There are also certain events in a case that indicate injured workers rights are about to be affected.

HOW MUCH DOES A BALTIMORE WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY CHARGE?

As I stated earlier some injured workers will reach out to a work injury attorney within hours of an accident.  Others do not know Work Injury attorneys even exist.  A good majority of people are unaware of what fees are paid to a work comp lawyer.  A Baltimore workers compensation lawyer or any Maryland workers compensation attorney for that matter, is paid out of money that is recovered for the injured worker.  If no money is recovered there is no legal fee owed!

WHAT DOES A BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION LAWYER DO IN MARYLAND WORKERS COMP CASES?

A great majority of work an attorney performs is done behind the scenes.  Because of this elusive work product, represented injured workers often feel as though the attorney is not doing much to help them.  I receive regular calls from already represented workers with this complaint.  I encourage those workers to reach out to their Baltimore workers compensation lawyer and ask them what work has been performed on their case.  This communication can go along way.  For a list of tasks that a workers compensation lawyer does on a daily basis Read more here

I AM NOT GETTING RETURN CALLS FROM MY MARYLAND WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY

Communication is a necessity for proper representation.  Baltimore workers compensation lawyers are very busy and often it is not feasible to return calls, or take them immediately, however clients should be entitled to a prompt response either by the attorney him/herself or an assistant. 

TERMINATING MY BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY

Although it is usually best to try and work out any differences the injured worker and attorney have, sometimes the separation of the relationship is necessary.

THE LOCAL MARYLAND WORKERS COMP ATTORNEY MAY NOT BE THE BEST OPTION

The selection of an attorney is an important one as there are some attorney’s more qualified and experienced than others.  Often an injured workers first thought is to hire an attorney that is local to them.  This is not always in their best interest.  The reality is that most if not all interaction with the attorney can be made by electronic and hard mail communication.  Of course their is something to be said about being able to see the attorney in person on a regular basis, but this factor alone should not lead to a compromise of qualifications.     I needed a lawyer for my workers compensation case. I was referred to Mr. Rodabaugh. I was very nervous about the case, and a little overwhelmed. Mr. Rodabaugh took extra time to talk to me (lots of questions he answered over the phone) and explained step by step of how everything worked. He was very confident, and made me feel comfortable with my case and decision. I highly recommend Mr. Rodabaugh.   

IS THERE A BEST BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY  

We all want the best, especially when dealing with a legal matter, and quite frankly a potentially life changing matter like a Maryland workers compensation case.  The problem is that a question like who is the best workers compensation attorney in  Baltimore does not have a clear answer.  When an injured worker wants the best Baltimore workers compensation lawyer they want an attorney that best suits their needs in every way possible.  The needs of each injured worker will vary in degree and in character.  One particular injured worker may be more focused on getting medical treatment authorized and performed rather than overall settlement of the claim.  Does this best Baltimore workers compensation lawyer value your request for more treatment?  Another injured worker may prefer a larger settlement that takes longer to obtain versus a smaller settlement obtained quickly.  Some injured workers value regular communication with their attorney rather than less communication and an expedited workers comp award.  The needs of the injured worker should match up with what the particular Baltimore workers compensation lawyer has to offer.  If the needs are met then perhaps the injured worker found their “Best Baltimore workers compensation lawyer.”

When asking a person (or google) who the best workers compensation attorney is in Baltimore be sure to dig a little deeper and determine why they may be considered the best.  Make sure the attorney that is labeled the best, is in fact the best attorney for you!

Who is Better?  The Best Baltimore workers compensation lawyer or the Top Baltimore workers compensation Attorney?

For the same reasons it is difficult or impossible to determine the best Baltimore workers compensation Lawyer in Maryland, it is nearly as difficult to determine the Top Baltimore workers compensation Lawyer.  There are many attorneys that are qualified, many that are experienced, there are some that are more experienced, and there are some that are more qualified.  Attorneys can be categorized based on being more or less qualified or experienced, but there are just too many factors to determine who the top or best Baltimore workers compensation Lawyer is.

Again, the top attorney for any particular injured worker is going to depend on the needs of that worker.  What is important to them may not be important to another injured worker.

The Best vs. The Top vs. The Attorney’s “specializing” in Baltimore workers compensation law

Under current Maryland law attorneys are not able to promote themselves by indicating they are “specialized in Maryland workers compensation.”  Maryland Rules prohibit the use of the term specialized when advertising a law practice.  This is a current rule for a number of reasons including the implication that the term specialized carries with it.  When a consumer hears the term specialized they may assume that particular attorney has undergone more training, education or a level of experience when compared to other Baltimore workers compensation Lawyers.  Branding oneself an “attorney specialized in workers compensation” is prohibited because it is deceptive.  Again, experience and qualifications are what the injured worker should focus on when searching for an attorney to represent them. 

So, How do you find the Best Baltimore Workers Compensation Lawyer for you?

Think about what you need in an attorney.  What do you want to get out of the workers compensation claim?  Is it about compensation and retribution?  Do you want to focus on getting healthier?  Do you want your workers compensation claim solidified so that you can obtain medical treatment in the future?

The relationship between the attorney and the injured worker is what matters. There are more qualified versus less qualified attorneys however, many attorneys can get all the benefits to which the injured worker is entitled.  To say that one is the best at one particular occupation indicates that they are better than all others in every regard to the occupation.  With workers comp attorneys- some are better at negotiating, while others are better at litigating, some are better at settling, while others are better at communicating.  Again, it is the relationship between the worker and the Baltimore workers compensation lawyer that is important and whether the particular attorney meets the needs of the particular injured employee.

YOUR BALTIMORE WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEY SHOULD UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH! An injured Maryland worker may be faced with some of the most difficult decision in their life.  They may have to choose between physical health and financial well being, what utility bills should be paid first, whether they want to accept an early retirement, or more.  These difficult questions demand the representation of an attorney that understands, can relate, and who has compassion to listen and counsel.

WHAT ARE FREE CONSULTATIONS Injured Maryland workers should be diligent to arrange at least one free consultation so they can get a better grasp as to what their rights may be.  Free is free.  While most people do not want to work for free an initial conversation between the attorney and the injured worker can be beneficial to both even if money is not exchanged.  The injured worker gets questions answered and the Baltimore workers compensation lawyer will review the case and see if it is a claim for which they would want to be retained.  The injured worker that has many questions should not expect a long consultation however a reasonable time may be considered different among various attorneys.  The Baltimore workers compensation lawyer will discuss the case and possible explain as to how the injured worker should proceed.  If the injured worker has an extensive list of questions then perhaps that is an indication a lawyer is needed to represent them.  The injured worker will have the option to call multiple attorneys for free consultations however if this is necessary a Baltimore workers compensation lawyer should actually be retained to represent them.
